Review: Resident Evil: Revelations (PS4)

Despite Resident Evil 7's critical and commercial success earlier this year, some fans took exception to its all-new stylistic approach to Capcom's juggernaut series, which they considered to be a betrayal of the survival horror's legendary...

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is still a huge mess and I love it

The last time I had gotten my hands on Dissidia Final Fantasy NT it was in the middle of a hazy, exhausting E3. I'm not making excuses for how I reacted to Dissidia's massive wave of new information, but there has been a noticeable differen...

Guide: The best Overwatch duos for Quick Play

There are a lot of great resources out there for Overwatch players. Tons of guides, tutorial videos, and strategies that you and your crack squad of regular teammates can employ. Deep strategies you can use to climb the competitive ladder a...

Review: Absolver

Absolver is full of crumbling buildings and eager combatants. There's little in its world that speaks of hope. Any sign of progress, of rebuilding and moving forward, is buried under the rubble of a society that's already forgotten. The onl...

Review: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Pirate Queen's Quest

Very few games make me smile while playing. I always find gaming pretty intense, even when having fun. But boy, do I grin like a dang fool when playing the Shantae series. I love the colours, the characters, the world, the adventures and th...

Review: Warriors All-Stars

It's about time Koei Tecmo allowed its absurd stable of characters to meet each other. We've had mild crossovers in the past as well as some light meetings and partings, but nothing like Warriors All-Stars. Before you roll your ey...

Review: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

As it turns out, all you need to turn the Rabbids from an over-saturated Minions-esque property into one that's accepted by open arms is a Princess Peach wig. Who knew? Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle exploded on the scene earlier this ...

Review: Flip Wars

When the Switch was first announced, many of us saw a brief glimpse at a rad party game, a genre that's become a staple on Nintendo systems since the N64 (though four-player Nightmare on Elm Street NES was pretty rad too). That project beca...

Review: The Defenders (Season 1)

When the Marvel Cinematic Universe first came to Netflix it seemed like such a great idea. Four individual series of shows focused on more grounded heroes eventually coming together in a small scale, Avengers-like fashion. But the excitemen...

Review: Sine Mora EX

Sine Mora was a celebrated shmup that came blasting out of a partnership between Hungarian studio Digital Realty and Japanese outfit Grasshopper Manufacture way back in 2012. It received praise at the time for its visuals and gameplay whils...

Review: The Hitman's Bodyguard

It's August, and that means we're entering the second span of doldrums for movie releases for the year (the first being the beginning of the year). From now until late September, when all of the horror films start rolling in, we get studio ...

Review: Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

From the very start, the Uncharted series has been intrinsically linked to Nathan Drake. His wisecracking Indiana Jones quips have won the world over, catapulting Nolan North into stardom and forcing all sorts of rewrites and recasts f...

Review: Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition

I remember the Video Game Violence senate hearings like they were yesterday. Who knew that my bright pink Lethal Enforcers light-gun would turn me into a raging psychopath? Or that the clunky Mega Drive port of Mortal Kombat was such a thre...

Review: Agents of Mayhem

Volition took Saints Row in such a nuttier direction than anyone could have predicted. But after ruling Stilwater, taking out the military in Steelport, being trapped in a virtual world and fighting aliens, and literally going to Hell, sure...

Review: Matterfall

It's hard to believe that Housemarque has been around since 1995. Having undergone two studio name changes, they've developed a number of low-key games over the years, but managed to strike gold back in 2007 with Super Stardust HD (itself a...

Review: Sonic Mania

What can you say about Sonic that hasn't already been said? He's had his ups and downs, and while he started very high up, he's sunk really far down over the past decade or so and even kissed a human girl. Oh, and he's shown up to race...

Review: Slime Rancher

I might be the wrong person to write this review simply because I can’t get over cuteness and charm, which was pretty much all I was expecting to enjoy about Slime Rancher. Farming sims have always held little interest for me mainly b...

Review: LawBreakers

It's great to see so many shooters making their mark on the industry again. I mean, they never really left, because right after Unreal Tournament stopped being relevant Halo roared onto the scene, but as a general rule there was o...

Review: Aven Colony

My people are starving. You'd think, when settling a polar ice cap, Mission HQ would be sure to send you with more food. But nooo, “there is some arable land, you can farm for yourself. Oh, we seem to have dropped you way too far from...

Review: Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

It's always tough to review a Ninja Theory game. They breathe a certain spark of life into their projects that practically no one studio can replicate. Yet, they insist on crafting relatively simplistic action sequences that detract from mu...

Early Access Review: Fortnite

Did you know that 2011 was six years ago? It was quite a year for gaming. Big games such as Skyrim and Portal 2 came out and made it onto many people’s game of the year lists. It's also when Duke Nukem Forever finally released af...

Review: Batman - The Enemy Within: The Enigma

I have always loved playing as The Bat. The Dark Knight lends himself well to video games, despite the fact he has starred in so many terrible ones. Recent years have been kinder to the character, however, as developers have finally nailed ...

Review: Namco Museum

Namco really does have quite the selection of classics in its library. That would probably explain why it has released far too many "collections" over the years. This newest one hits the Switch, which already gives it the added benefit of b...

Review: The Dark Tower

If you've read Stephen King's prolific Dark Tower saga you know it's a weird, wonderful, flawed, brilliant, mess of an epic that touches so many genres it's hard to classify it at all. It bounces from western to science fiction to fant...

In Everybodys Golf, I always get the two button prompt, instead of three, regardless of whether or not I have auto-impact Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

 
CaimDark Reloaded

When you own multiple gaming platforms, do you feel a weird sense of guilt when you ignore one of them for a long time? I I know, it makes no sense, but I cant help but feel I have to justify the investment
